I have been having lower abdominal pain for a few days that is worsening. I don t have a gall bladder but when I did, it ruptured before the pain was great enough to realize something was truly wrong. I also only had a low grade temp. I m not running a fever but the pain is getting worse. Could it be my appendices?
